Tan Mi reserved a room in the spa hotel in advance, but when they were checking in at the front desk, there was a slight hiccup.
“There’s no room available?” Tan Mi, who was wearing sunglasses, looked at the staff at the front desk with a frown. “Didn’t I reserve a room? How can there be no room?”
The staff was full of smiles and carefully explained to Tan Mi, “Miss Tan, can you see if this works? We will upgrade your room to two deluxe single rooms for free and all other expenses will be free of charge during the period.”
Jiang Baiwan’s heart was already shaken, but she still stood by and waited obediently for Tan Mi to speak. Tan Mi thought for a long time before she reluctantly agreed. “Okay. We’re checking in.”
As if granted amnesty, the front desk staff quickly checked in Tan Mi and Jiang Baiwan. Tan Mi was still a bit unhappy as she walked along. “How can a hotel with such an expensive rate make such a low-level mistake?”
“Maybe the room had been transferred?” Jiang Baiwan comforted Tan Mi. “It’s all right. Isn’t this a free room upgrade? It’s quite good too.”
Tan Mi poked Jiang Baiwan’s forehead. “I don’t know how you developed such an easy-going personality.” Then, the two walked to the door of their rooms. Tan Mi handed Jiang Baiwan’s room card to her. “Keep it and don’t lose it. I won’t let you come and stay in my room.”
Jiang Baiwan took the card with a smile and entered her room. Tan Mi didn’t lie to her, it was really the best spa resort hotel. Not only the room was well-furnished, there was even a small open-air spa outside. The edge of the hot spring was tightly surrounded by a high fence, which could prevent mosquitoes and also cut off the sight of prying eyes.
“This place is nice……” The country bumpkin Jiang Baiwan entered the city and was staring at everything in front of her dumbfounded. “I can even soak in the spa on my own room?”
“That’s right. Such an expensive hotel, how can we go and squeeze in with others?” Tan Mi leaned against the doorway with her arms folded and looked at Jiang Baiwan. “I’ll treat you these few days. All the expenses will be charged to my account so you can use it as you wish. No need to be polite with me.”
Jiang Baiwan was so moved, she wanted to hug Tan Mi’s thigh. “Tan Mi, if you’re so kind to me, I’ll suspect that you’re in love with me.”
Tan Mi looked repulsed. “If you say such disgusting words again, you’ll pay for it yourself.”
Just as the two women were laughing and joking with each other, Ji Chen and Gu Dongcheng also walked into the hotel. Only, the welcome treatment given to Tan Mi and Jiang Baiwan were different from Ji Chen and Gu Dongcheng. The hotel manager personally came out and greeted them. “President Ji, President Gu, the rooms are all ready. I’ll take the two of you there now.”
Gu Dongcheng walked ahead, looking around casually while he talked to Ji Chen, “Ji Chen, how did you come up with the idea of going to a spa hotel to discuss business with me? This doesn’t seem like your style. Could it be your sisterolder sister that told you?”
Ji Chen’s brows that had relaxed a little bit tightened once again. He didn’t answer Gu Dongcheng’s words, but Gu Dongcheng didn’t seem to intend to let him go. “Your sister has been staying at home recently and hasn’t been going out. If you have time, please advise her not to stay home all day long but go out and have fun.”
“My sister didn’t contact me.” Ji Chen coldly interrupted Gu Dongcheng. “This place is arranged by my subordinate.”
Upon hearing this, Gu Dongcheng turned his head and glanced at Ji Chen with half a smile. “Really? I thought it was your sister who said something to you.”
Ji Chen’s dark and heavy eyes met Gu Dongcheng’s, while the latter put his hands in his pockets, his face full of provocation. The atmosphere between the two men gradually became tense, and even the people around them could feel the invisible storm.
The manager of the hotel was standing on the side, sweating profusely but not daring to interrupt—— We’re already at the door of your rooms! If you have any grudges, can you let me go back first?
In the end, it was Ji Chen who turned his face away first, took the room card from the hotel manager’s hand, and entered his room. Gu Dongcheng sneered before going into the room next to Ji Chen’s.
After closing the door, Ji Chen sat on the bed for a long time, suppressing the violent emotions inside him. He wanted to teach Gu Dongcheng a lesson, but he was always overcautious. This feeling was really terrible.
Ji Chen narrowed his eyes and exhaled…… There will always be a chance in the future.
Jiang Baiwan followed Tan Mi around the entire resort hotel. It was an eye-opening experience for her. The life of the rich was really different. Not only was the hotel fully equipped, it even has a small theater inside!
Until they got back to the room, Jiang Baiwan still couldn’t get over it. “It’s so well-equipped. There’s a theater, library, and even several healthy restaurants.”
“This is a resort hotel, so of course, they must have everything.” Tan Mi said while smiling, “There’re all kinds of soft services. Have you seen the Bluetooth earphone on the side of your bed?”
Jiang Baiwan shook her head. “I didn’t notice.”
Tan Mi sighed. “Check it out for yourself when you’ve finished soaking in the spa. There’s a wireless earphone by the bed that you can use to contact the hotel’s front desk and make appointments for various other services.”
The two were sitting in the small spa in Jiang Baiwan’s room. Tan Mi had ordered for a bottle of red wine. After opening, she poured two glasses and placed it on the tray on the water. The tray swayed with the waves, looking like it was going to topple over in the next moment, but it stood firmly.
Jiang Baiwan was wrapped in the warm water, feeling very comfortable down to her bones. “It’s so comfortable, I feel like sleeping.”
“Don’t sleep in the here, you’ll either drown or suffocate.” Tan Mi patted Jiang Baiwan’s face. “Your face is all red, why don’t you stop soaking?”
Jiang Baiwan stared at Tan Mi for a while, her clear eyes looked watery due to the steam. “Tan Mi, there’s something I haven’t told you all this time, but I must say today.”
Tan Mi was taken aback. “What?”
“Your chest is really big!” Jiang Baiwan’s eyes fell on Tan Mi’s chest. “Look at yours! Then look at mine!” Jiang Baiwan tried to reach out and touch it. “The difference is too obvious!”
“You pervert!” Tan Mi quickly dodged, and for a moment, the laughter of the two women echoed in the small enclosure.
Sitting on the balcony, Gu Dongcheng listened to the faint voices of the women next door, feeling a slight itch in his heart—— One of the women’s voices sounded light and airy. There was a shadow of her.
Thinking of the woman whom he had always cherished in his heart, Gu Dongcheng couldn’t help but sigh softly again. He was married now. Logically speaking, he should not disturb her life anymore. It’s just that when facing his wife every day, Gu Dongcheng was completely unable to warm up to her.
Was this the magic of love? Gu Dongcheng’s eyes were a little dazed, but at this time there was another cry of surprise that came from next door, and Gu Dongcheng regained his senses. He glanced at the high wall over the other side and his heart became increasingly agitated—— Who exactly was staying next door? He’ll go and inquire once he had time today.
Ji Chen, who was sitting inside his room, thought he heard Jiang Baiwan’s voice. But how could there be such a coincidence? Ji Chen paused for a moment, but then continued to concentrate on the documents in his hand.
Tan Mi was glaring at Jiang Baiwan. “Have you gotten enough? Well now, happy?”
Jiang Baiwan looked at the tragically capsized bottle of red wine and the glasses floating on the water, knowing that she was wrong. “Sorry, sorry, let’s go up first.”
After the two came out of the water, Tan Mi went back to her room while Jiang Baiwan lay comfortably on the bed after taking a shower with the phone in her hand. She was just about to eat a plate of chicken, but unexpectedly received a WeChat message from Ji Chen.
Ji Chen: Did you have a good time hanging out with Tan Mi today?
Jiang Baiwan immediately typed and replied quickly, as if she had been injected with chicken blood: Happy, happy! I’m having a great time! Tan Mi asked me to charge all the expenses to her account, which made me feel quite embarrassed.
Looking at the long string of words sent by Jiang Baiwan, the corners of Ji Chen’s mouth couldn’t help lifting. He thought for a while, then replied with a voice message, “If you feel embarrassed, you can treat her to dinner at the end of the day.”
Jiang Baiwan listened to Ji Chen’s voice and couldn’t help sighing. “That’s what I was thinking, but we’re in a resort hotel, so even if I invite her to dinner, I can only invite her to a paid-for restaurant.”
Ji Chen snorted coldly in his heart. What’s wrong with treating her to a paid-for restaurant?
“If you don’t want to owe her a favor, you can put in on my account.” Ji Chen said surprisingly. “No need to be polite with me, after all, we are…… friends.”
Jiang Baiwan inexplicably felt that Ji Chen’s words seemed to be wrong somewhere, but the sentence was also normal. Jiang Baiwan stared at the phone screen, contemplated for a while, and then said, “It’s okay, it’s fine, I have my own money. I have eight million!”
Ji Chen: “……”
Being satisfied with eight million, she’s not greedy at all.
At this moment, there was a knock on the door of Jiang Baiwan’s room. She hurriedly got out of bed to open it, missing the last sentence Ji Chen said to her.
“Miss, the dinner you ordered is here.” At the door was the hotel attendant, who was pushing a food trolley and was courteous when facing Jiang Baiwan. Jiang Baiwan made way for her. “Sorry for bothering you.”
The attendant parked the food trolley at the door and brought Jiang Baiwan’s dinner in. Jiang Baiwan was standing by the door wondering how much she should tip when the opposite door suddenly opened.
Looking at the person who walked out from inside the room, Jiang Baiwan’s expression gradually became surprised, while the other person also noticed Jiang Baiwan standing there, the expression on his face also stunned.
The two looked at each other for a long time. Finally, Jiang Baiwan slowly raised her hand, pointing at him with a trembling finger. “Ji Chen? Why are you here?!”
